Default 8T 2.0 rtr questions

Any one got this truggy as yet? How is the 8t 2.0 on durability lets say compared to a MT ( savage, revo) ?

I want to get one to bash with the buggy guys...no racing here.

Is there grease in the diffs like the 1.0 rtr or Oil this time?

how fast is it 40, 45 ? how is the 454. I know its sopose to be similar to the lrp .28 but heard it has a different carb and head, wondering how this might affect the performance?

If any one have consumer pics of this truggy post em up

why do you "racers" always try to give off the impression that bashers should buy the cheaper stuff not so top of the line stuff?

The losi is the best rtr truggy on the market....RC8t - weak...jammin x2- tough but crappy electronics and engine not soo goo...etc

Thanks mugen but I'm not in the USA and you know how expensive longgggg distance calls get.

So does anyone on this forum have any info on this truggy?

Hey - I have the 2.0 RTR buggy and so far have been reasonably happy. A couple issues I have had:

1. Starter Box is a bit weak and my motor had a really tight pinch which made it difficult (Heat Gun, etc. + Ofna Box got things going)

2. Both servos have died.

3. Carb Throttle Slide Collar has pulled off and you cannot buy that piece alone? Now what?

Besides that .... I am happy with the purchase. The radio is great, the buggy handles great and everything besides whats listed above seems to be really good quality.

After serious consideration and a little bit more experience over the last 3 months since I have taken up this hobby + a little bit of racing I would seriously consider getting the Race Roller and building upwards. Its been nice to pull it out the box and go racing but I am already considering an engine upgrade and already had to replace both the servos. Hence justifying the extra +- $200 above the RTR price it would cost to build from scratch.
